"When it comes to portable kennels, Gunner Kennels' offerings are top of the line, and I honestly can say they're the best I've encountered."

Shooting Sportsmen

"It's ridiculously overbuilt (it'll stop a shotgun blast at seven paces) [and] it protects your most valuable hunting tool: your tail-wagging pal.

Field & Stream

"Meet the last dog crate you'll ever need: a Gunner Kennel, manufactured in Tennessee."


"This burly crate will keep your dogs safer in the car... the Gunner G1 is the most useful dog kennel ever made."

Swamp Assassin LLC

"The thing is a beast, but that's kind of the point. There are considerable deficiencies in safety standards when it comes to travel products for dogs and the Gunner Kennel was named a 2015 Top Performer by the Center for Pet Safety"


"Because of this door (as well as the 125 other parts that make up each kennel), Gunner is the only manufacturer with a four- or five-star rating from the Center for Pet Safety, which allows them to advertise as a CPS-certified product."


"There is not even a close second on the market to compete with Gunner Kennels. Not even a distant third competitor. These crates live on a planet all their own. Beyond the safety and crazy rugged design, it’s like taking Stella’s bedroom with her to every duck lodge we encounter. She loves that thing. It’s her own bedroom, and yet is seems virtually indestructible. What I love most about Gunner Kennels is the organic nature of the story: just a guy who loved his dog so much that he wouldn’t stop until he built the safest crate he could design for a dog named Gunner that has added so much value to his life. Truthfully, all of us have that story. I love my dog. That’s why I have a Gunner Kennel."


"I've been trying to get my hands on one of these since I saw the prototype. I watched and waited, and spoke with Edmonds about his vision in developing all the needs that a great kennel has to have for your companion. My professional opinion: he hit the ball out of the park. From product testing, down to the installation manual and packaging, he took his time and thought of everything. I look forward to using the kennel with my Springer Spaniels for years to come."

Covey Rise Magazine

"I can say without a shadow of doubt that my dog has never been safer then when he was placed inside his Gunner Kennel for the first time. There are metal kennels on the market that don't offer the same level of protection that the Gunner Kennels do. Gunner Kennels have allowed my team to have peace of mind while traveling around on the roads in any condition. Thank you Addison for finally engineering a kennel that has as much quality as the dog I put in it. Whether you use your dog to make a living with or have them just as a companion, ask yourself..."What is their safety worth to you?""

Duck Down Waterfowl LLC

"As dog trainers and hunters we spend a lot of time hunting and traveling with our dogs. The Gunner Kennel is a well made and very well thought out product. A lot of time and effort is spent training and caring for a dog and we always want the best care for them. We are confident that this product will help protect our dogs when traveling for training or hunting."

The Gunner is a 5 Star Crash Test Certified crate by Center For Pet Safety. An overwhelming majority of products have failed its standards. Choose your kennel wisely.



At the heart of our company is safety. Since our launch we've helped protect thousands of dogs on the road. We've helped save dozens of dogs too.


The Gunner Kennel is the original dog crate to earn a 5 Star Crash Test Rating from the Center for Pet Safety. See what that means and why that matters.


You said it, not us. Tested to withstand a 630 lb. sled dropped from over 8 feet, a 200-foot cliff drop, 4,000 lb. of force and a 12-gauge shot gun and more.


Due to its double-wall rotomolded construction and patented details, the Gunner kennel has properties that work for your dog in all types of weather.


Our double-wall rotomolded construction offers an extra layer of material which helps limit UV rays, as well as humidity.

Rubber feet raise the G1™ off the ground, limiting heat transmission from hot surfaces like truck beds & pavement.

Purchasing our pad accessories add an additional layer of protection, helping bring temps down inside the crate.

The G1™ has ample airflow with 10 windows on its sides, a vented door and three rear windows. The G1™ Fan Kit gets even more air circulation through there.

We conducted temperature tests using our kennel & others on the market. There was a nearly 50 degree difference between one popular crate and ours. See results here


The second layer of construction on our G1™ adds extra protection against outside chill and cold winds.

Rubber feet raise the G1™, limiting heat transmission out of kennel & allowing the dog to retain warmth.

In the same way, our pad accessories limits heat conduction from the frozen ground, keeping the dog cozy in there.

Engineers specifically designed the window vents to repel elements like water, sleet & snow. Plus our All-Weather Kit provides additional protection.

Gunner Kennels tests on cold winter days showed that the G1™ stayed anywhere from 15-45 degrees warmer inside the kennel than exterior temperatures.
